Don't Squeeze the Charmin

Mr. Whipple a television commercial icon won't be squeezing any more rolls of Charmin tissue. Mr. Whipple, actually the actor Dick Wilson quitely passed away at his home in Los Angeles on Monday, November 19, 2007. Wilson was 91 and his acting career featured both onstage and dozens of television show and movies. He had guest rolls in Westerns and sitcoms and he was a regular on "Bewitched" and "McHale's Nacy". His film career spanned more than 30 years.

The Charmin television commercials had to be the best example of grown ups having fun and getting into as much trouble as kids. Featured on television during the late 60's, 70's and 80's The commerical featured a group of women squeezing the soft rolls of and Mr. Whipple chasing them away from it, however, he as soon as the woman were gone he couldn't resist squeezing the Charmin.

Thanks for the Memories.
